No blog? Your website is doomed. Or not.

Your website must have a blog. If your site has no blog, you have no hope of getting the attention of potential customers or search engines and your website is doomed. And your business too.  Or so many web gurus will tell you.

A picture of a sinking ship

Your blogless website will sink like a stone. Not.
